Meanwhile, The Donald remains drunk on publicity.
This is what Bernie Sanders believes in.
What we see at a GOP rally for Donald Trump:
What Donald Trump sees:
It’s all crazy, but what really is over the top is a reference to Donald Trump and Jesus in the same space/time continuum. And the sign is very confusing. Based on the color of the lettering says: Thank You, Jesus, for Lord President Trump.
What’s a Lord President? Is that some level of Jedi Sith? And besides, Trump hasn’t performed any miracles. It’s not like his face is going to magically appear in food:
I’m pretty sure that as all this plays out, there are going to be times when I think I’ve gone insane, because this can’t be possible. I mean, it makes as much sense as this:
IT’S MY HEAD!!!
What’s that sandwich reference all about? (Via Jezebel)
During a segment on Fox News that discussed a study which said Republicans were happier in their marriages compared to Democrats (by a mere 7%), co-host and former MTV Real Worldseason 3 star Rachel Campos-Duffy said that she believed the secret to a happy, conservative marriage was due to two things: religion and sandwiches. The segment aired on Tuesday’s edition of Outnumbered, reports Raw Story. “I think more Republicans tend to be religious people,” said Campos-Duffy, who has been married to congressman and former MTV Real World season six star Sean Duffy for 17 years. “I know for myself and I know in the Greek Orthodox Church it’s the same idea of sanctification, that marriage is a sacrament, it’s a holy thing. And my job being married is to get my husband and my [seven] kids to heaven with me. And I think that changes the whole perspective on marriage.”
After asking the rest of the panel about their thoughts, host Andrea Tantaros referenced a recent discussion the group had in regards to a Glamour magazine article about “man-pleasing tips.” Tantaros had disagreed with the magazine’s decision to pull the article and voiced her own man-pleasing tips, one that included, “After you engage in a little horizontal hula, make him a sandwich!”
Tantaros defended her previous comments, saying, “This is not transporting women back to the 1950s, it’s just kindness.” She then described being “crucified by feminists” from liberal blogs. “I mean, ladies, if you want to fight with me all day and be against the side of kindness and respect for the one that you love, that’s a fight I’ll have all day long,” Tantaros said. Campos-Duffy then piped in by saying, “And it shows they are more likely to get divorced because they won’t make that sandwich. Make the sandwich, darn it!”
And we all know how Fox News loves to defend women’s interest:
And you’ve got the think that at some point, the people who own the party are going to do something about the people who run it.
Calmes’s analysis is extensive and worth reading here.
… But of course it’s for a batshit crazy reason (Via Right Wing Watch):
In an interview with Religious Right radio host Jan Markell this weekend, former Rep. Michele Bachmann once again claimed that President Obama is ushering in the End Times, this time citing the nuclear agreement with Iran as proof of the arrival of the Last Days.
Bachmann claimed that the unanimous UN Security Council vote to approve the agreement was “the most important national security event of my lifetime” because it fulfilled the prophecy of Zechariah 12:3 that all the nations of the world will unite against Israel, “with the United States leading that charge.” She added that God and “heaven’s armies” will use groups like AIPAC to defeat the deal in Congress and in doing so “prove to the world His power and His strength.” …
… Bachmann told listeners that they should feel “encouraged” by the fact that they are living in the End Times, explaining that these dark times are actually the best time to be alive since that means the world will soon come to an end.
In case you forgot, this was a U.S. congresswoman who at one time was a frontrunner for the 2012 GOP nomination for president. Put that in context, and Donald Trump doesn’t look so bad.
